PETRA SPITERI FRIEND OF THE FACTORY - MINDFULNESS TRAINER FOR ADULTS AND CHILDREN
Petra runs mindfulness courses to help clients (as groups, families or in a corporate setting) to reduce anxiety, stress, reactivity and worry and improve emotional awareness and resilience. Mindfulness based cognitive therapy involves the use of interactive sessions. Training is done on understanding our emotions, learning to meditate and also use our senses to slow down and bring more non-judgemental awareness to the present moment. Scientific evidence shows that mindfulness meditation reliably and profoundly alters the structure and function of the brain to improve the quality of both thoughts and feelings, and Petra passionately offers this expertise to her clients, and as part of the interdisciplinary team at Polaris.
